After parting ways with Richards Bay, coach Simo Dladla has thanked the team’s management for giving him an opportunity to work at the club.
The club announced on their Twitter page yesterday that they have released Dladla and his technical team from their duties, citing poor results.
Dladla told FARPost that he is fine with the decision taken by the team and thanked the chairman (Jomo Biyela), for entrusting him with the responsibility of coaching the team.
“It’s true my brother, I’m resting at home now, they told me about poor performance of the team,” said Dladla.
“I’m fine with their decision, they look at things their own way so I’m happy with the work I did with the players. In terms of players, yeah we had good players to get the job done (winning the league) and they did their best.
“I can’t blame anyone, I’m just grateful for the opportunity I was given by the chairman and the support, and the players, the technical team and everyone in the team.”
“I was not given a chance (to say goodbye to the players), obviously from Johannesburg I didn’t go to Richards Bay. I’m in Durban now and I don’t think I’ll get that chance to say goodbye to the players, that is bad but it’s what it is.
“Like I said, I’m just grateful for the opportunity to coach the team,” added Dladla.
